Hi All,
My wife and I are going to be at an event in Corvallis, OR at the end of June and there might be a possibility that the local RV park (Benton Oaks) will be full (I'll know for sure next week). I was wondering if anyone knew of any decent boondocking spots within a 10 to 15 mile radius of Corvallis. Even a good state park would be good also. We'll be there for three nights, Thurs., Fri., and Sat. Thanks,
John

Thanks very much Paul! We sure should be able to manage something from that group. I really appreciate you taking the time to put together the list. We're looking forward to the nicer weather to do some exploring now that we finally have a TT to stay in. Thanks again,

John and Ginny

This park is nothing fancy, very basic. It is close to the willamette river park, a nice setting and never crowded.

Willamette Park, Goodnight Avenue. Phone: 541-757-6918.
